The point of the game is to ask math questions that are totally worthless. First one to answer with the correct answer brings the next. (PLease giive questions with real knowable answers please)

Hmmm, I meant to specify positive integers (I was thinking that was what 'whole numbers' were). In any case, the 4 answers I referred to are all greater than 1.

What is the lowers prime number with more than 3 digits which contains only prime numbers as integers. For example 13 contains all prime numbers, but 43 does not.

Uh, no. (-1)^3 is -1, but I said the number is equal to the sum of the cubes of its digits. The digit in -1 is 1. 1^3 = +1.

Come on guy's, how many zeros? I assure you there is a simple way to get the right number. Look factorial(3^19) has 290565359 zeros.

Geekazoid: you can't layer exponents like that, they're binary operators. Factorial, however, is a unary operator.

I say again that there is absolultely no difference between 0.99999999999.... (assuming the nines go on forever) and 1.0.

Say, you wouldn't be the same Oviraptor who finds their way onto all of the Jp boards/ reg boards across the internet are you?

Nope. I am only a member of one other forum. Only in that forum, I don't have a typo in my user name.

Am I supposed to give a new math problem now?

I.e., XYZ = X^3 + Y^3 + Z^3 (where X, Y & Z are digits, not multiplied terms)

There are only 4 possible answers.

153 370 371 407

I assume you mean all prime digits? So only contains the digits 2,3,5,7? Then it would be: 2237 If you also allow 1, which is not actually prime, but appears in your example, the answer would be: 1117

New question: Can you find five points on a sphere so that no four of them lie in a single closed hemisphere? ("Closed" means "including the boundary circle") Why or why not?
